    Twall,
    Where did you find this list? Was it on the MOHP site somewhere? Could you provide a URL? Looking for an official list of governorates.
    Thanks very much.

      Welcome drvetepi.

      Twall is presently on sabbatical from FluTrackers. He resides in Egypt and speaks fluent Arabic. He compiled this list for us.

        Welcome to FluTrackers.

        An almost current list of Egypt governorates can be found at the link below. Helwan and 6th of October are missing from the list and the accompanying map is incomplete.

          Thank you for the warm welcomes.

          I appreciate the link to the Arabic wikipedia site. I also have this:
          http://www.egypt.gov.eg/english/guide/governorsAll.aspx
          which appears outdated; is also missing Helwan and 6th of October -- perhaps this is how the wiki site was populatioed.

          If anyone comes across an MOHP/official site that has an updated list, I would appreciate it! In the meantime I will take a look at the Arabic wiki site.

          Thanks again!
